The experimental and computational assessments of platelet activation in coronary stenosis were discussed. It was demonstrated that trajectories that exposed the platelets to the highest shear stress levels led them towards entrapment in the recirculation zone. The platelets entrapped in the recirculation zone was found to have a higher incidence of activation.
